Booking Terms and Conditions


●      A deposit of between £40 and £100 (depending on the artist) is required in advance to book a tattoo appointment. A deposit is required for each tattoo, even if you are coming to get them on the same day. (For example, 2 tattoos = 2 deposits). The deposit is payable via Bank Transfer, PayPal, credit card or cash.

●      Once a deposit has been received, we will discuss and agree on a date and time of arrival with you. Please book your tattoo appointment on a day when you have no set plans immediately after your appointment. Give yourself plenty of time and do not rush the artist.

●      If you would like to rearrange your appointment, we ask for a minimum of 72 hours’ notice. The deposit is non-refundable if for whatever reason you can’t make your appointment on the day and haven’t been able to give us 72 hours notice.


●      Please do not come to your tattoo appointment if you feel unwell. Just give us as much notice as you can. Bear in mind that you may still be contagious even if you feel you’ve recovered from symptoms. If you’ve been suffering from a cold, flu, cough, temperature, or a sickness bug, for example and have started to feel better, it will still be ok to rearrange. We’re a small business, and staff illness has a big impact on us – so please don’t come in unless you’re sure you are no longer contagious.


●      If you cancel because you are ill or recovering from illness, we will give you a period of time (usually 30 days) in which you must reschedule your appointment.

●      If you are more than 20 mins late for your appointment, the time missed will be charged at our hourly rate and will be in addition to the cost of your tattoo once you arrive. We reserve the right not to tattoo you if you arrive leaving insufficient time for us to complete the tattoo.

●      Custom drawings/tattoo designs are not available until the day of your appointment. We ask customers to look through our tattoo portfolio and reviews (healed and fresh tattoos available on Instagram and reviews on Google and Facebook) before booking. There is always time on the day to discuss your design and ask for small changes.


 Your Appointment

●      The Tattooing of Minors Act 1969 makes it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo. Parental consent is not accepted. All customers will need to bring proof of age with them on the day, in the form of photo ID such as a passport or driving licence.

●      Avoid drinking alcohol, and energy drinks such as Red Bull 24 hours prior to your appointment. Make sure you have eaten properly prior to your appointment

●      If you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or we suspect that you are, we cannot tattoo you. You will be asked to leave and your deposit will not be refunded.

●      On the day of your appointment, a consent form will be provided which we will fill out. You’ll be expected to disclose information about health conditions and medications. Certain conditions, medications, or medical histories will mean that we are not able to tattoo you. If you would like to view the consent form beforehand, please contact us.

●      It is your responsibility to care for your new tattoo and follow the artist’s aftercare advice. We only recommend using aftercare products specifically made for tattoos. We will provide you with aftercare instructions and we sell aftercare cream at the studio.
